Like many first-time mamas, Mila Kunis received a push present, but in her case, her gift was something she designed herself in partnership with jeweler Marina B to help celebrate first-time mothers all over the world! The future Mrs. Kutcher and mom to three-week-old Wyatt Isabelle, crafted a yellow gold and emerald ring to help mark this important milestone.

"Carrying a child and bringing new life into the world marks the start of an incredible journey," Kunis said in a statement about her new partnership. "Throughout history, every culture has its own way of recognizing this extraordinary event, often with a gift for mother or child."
These are also socially conscious pieces of memorabilia — each motherhood ring will go towards funding a maternity center in Zambia, where Gemfields, a responsibly sourced gem supplier that Kunis is the Global Ambassador for, is located.
Besides their generous mission, these rings have added meaning because, as Kunis explains, emeralds commonly symbolize motherhood.
"Precious green emeralds are traditionally symbols of motherhood, wisdom, and long-lasting love," Kunis continued. "But they are also a symbol for hope in many cultures, and so the proceeds from this collection of Motherhood Rings will benefit the opening of Gemfields Nkana Health Centre, where four new wards have been built — a major undertaking that will have long-lasting benefits to the local community."
If you want to match Mila, you can reserve the "Mila" ring for yourself (and for $4,800) on Marina B's website.
Now, if only she'd get that wedding ring too ...
